Ok, so I checked out EcoLandscape California’s River-Friendly display garden at the Northern California Home & Landscape Expo. It’s really great to see this topic reaching the general public at a home show.
The Sacramento UC Master Gardeners also had a booth nearby. I finally got a chance to try out the UC IPM kiosk! Woo hoo! It’s super, super cool and much smaller in person than I imagined from the photo on the IPM website. It’s the perfect size for a nursery counter! I want one… though I have no nursery… rats! Speaking of rats, after a test search, the machine spit out environmentally friendly control recommendations for rats. A friend of ours in East Sac. is having a rat problem.
The little machine works great. The touch screen is easy to use, buttons are fast and responsive, and the little printer is a very nice touch. Great job, UC IPM folks!
